Don't you hate it when newly installed/updated applications ruin your pristine desktop with their filthy shortcuts without your permission?  :mad:
Are you tired of manually deleting said shortcuts off your desktop over and over again?   :'(
Introducing "Desktop Maid", the clever little application that will keep your desktop clean once and for all!  :Thmbsup:

* It will automatically monitor your desktop and move any newly detected shortcuts into its "JunkBin" folder where they will remain out of sight until you choose otherwise.
* Did I mention that "Desktop Maid" is clever? That's right, it will only get rid of shortcut files and will not touch anything else.
* You can always restore and exclude any shortcuts that it "deleted" so you can keep your desktop exactly the way you like it!
* What are you waiting for? Download now!!  :P

 - Initial release
 - Exclusions are now stored in an XML file (DesktopMaid.xml) for portability.
 - The application is now a single instance only (as it should be).
 - Added support to monitor both the user's desktop and the public (all users) desktop.
 - New (more fitting) icon.
 - Added (Exit) context menu to the tray icon.
 - Added new settings tab.
 - Added customizable option to monitor most common shortcuts (lnk, url, and appref-ms).
 - Minimize to tray and minimize to tray on startup are no separated.
 - Monitoring the all users (public) desktop is now optional (enabled by default).
 - You can now show a small counter to represent the number of shortcuts in the junk list on the tray icon.
 - Added exception logging.
 - Added option to add the application to Windows startup (for lazy folks).
 - Minor improvements
